We were caught in the middle of a torrential storm on market day with 2 children in a double buggy! Once we left the covered market, we decided to find a restaurant for lunch. Rainbow was probably the first "haven" we found whilst running down the main street into Kalkan which was now essentially a river.

They were friendly and the service was very good and efficient. The food didn't take very long to arrive either, but it was by far the worst food we had experienced in Kalkan all week; in fact it was the only food that was disappointing!

My wife had a chicken grill (kebab) which sounded lovely on the menu but a under-cooked fried chicken breast - not grilled (!) with a handful of rice and a few slices of fresh bread. We expected seasoned chicken breast cooked over an open flame (like most other Turkish restaurants) with pitta bread, rice and vegetables.

My meal was slightly better but very over-priced. I had mince meat with yoghurt cooked in leaves. Very over-priced and a very small portion. My children didn't touch their cheese sandwiches which was literally a fresh bread roll with one or two slices of processed cheese.

My requested Turkish tea was a cup of lipton's tea! When I questioned this, they had no Turkish tea!

Unfortunately I had to complain about everything and they took the cost of my wife's meal off the bill.

The one disappointing restaurant that we went to for the whole week in Kalkan. Real shame!

visited the Thursday morning market (too early as not many stalls were up and running!) and decided to have some breakfast before returning to our villa. Spotted this one open and went in. Sat by the roadside; one Turkish breakfast and one cheese omelette ordered; 2 glasses of home made lemon iced tea. The tea was great; as were the breakfasts although perhaps a little too much lettuce with the omelette. Turkish breakfast looked great (I didn't get a look in!); egg honey jam bread cheeses and olives. Cost was 30tl - will return ..... service very friendly and quite good English spoken ...

Had a couple of really nice meals here. It is quite close to the market and is a good place to stop for a beer and a bit of lunch. Ahmet the owner is a great host who speaks very good English. The rest of the staff are courteous too. Hope the restaurant does well !

Our first visit was good with 4 out of 5 of our party opting for pizza as we were only looking for a light meal on our first night, food was really nice so we returned for breakfast later in the week, which was excellent. As we had been impressed with the food and service we decided to return for an evening meal, which left us disappointed, 3 out of 5 were ok, one meal was small and one fish was awful. The restaurant was very busy at the time of our visit and we feel that the poor service and poor quality of food was down to the inadequacy to cope. Overall very disappointed with our return visit meal.
